Hello Everyone! Here is my latest creation for High Hopes Challenge #25! I love these challenges and this week Jeanne of the High Hopes Divas came up with a great sketch! I have been wanting to use the Francis Owl stamp from High Hopes for some time now and this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to use a smaller stamp.
I coloured the owl image with copic markers and then added icicle stickles to the flowers to brighten them up. I cut the image out using my nesties, embossed the circle, and then chalked around the image with a light tan colour. The "Who" stamp is from the Cornish Heritage Farms stamp set "U R A Hoot". I stamped 3 of these images with SU Close to Cocoa ink and then chalked them completely to match the chalking around the owl. I then added one of them to a smaller matted circle I had cut out and applied 4 orange flower brads with small brown pearls for centres. I then applied the images to a mat of DP from Francis Meyer called "Autumn Wheat". I added the 2 remaining "Who" images and larger brown pearls to the space around the images and then applied the whole thing to brown cardstock. The cardstock used in this project is from Bazzill Papers. I found the brown pearls at my local dollar store.
I hope you enjoy my card and I want to wish everyone a very Happy Easter. May God bless you with rest and quality time spent with friends and family!
